Your Destiny Alpha characters are getting wiped

If you're a PlayStation 4 owner, hopefully you made the most out of this weekend's First Look Alpha for Bungie's upcoming MMO shooter, Destiny. This weekend's Alpha test, which was made available only to PS4 owners ahead of next month's official beta, ends tonight. And with Beta not beginning until July 17, this marks the last time you'll be able to enjoy the game for quite some while.

Ready for some bad news now? The progress you made this weekend will not carry over into the beta. Bungie confirmed that Alpha characters will be wiped ahead of Beta, meaning you'll have to start from scratch. 

I sort of expected this and hopefully you did too. It's rare that characters from Alpha ever carry over to the full game anyways. If you didn't get a chance to check out this weekend's Alpha, we've got some video coverage of it here.

Destiny is set to officially launch on September 9, 2014 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360.
